Limited Edition Striped Chairs at London Design Festival

A limited edition of striped organic loop chairs, signed by British designer Julian Mayor,  will be presented at the next week’s Design Junction from 24-27 of September as part of this year’s London Design Festival. The fiberglass chair is constructed using three planes and features a graphic pattern that references military dazzle ships.

“The starting point for the chair was a computer render (2012), I was particularly interested in how three planes could meet in an interesting way. Originally I wanted to make the chair in metal, but found that the material would not stretch to make the smooth contours, so I made a model in more of a facetted way and then worked from that into a wireframe version (2012) and a metal version (2013). However, I was always interested in making the chair smoothly and worked with a company to make a CNC prototype in hard foam. The foam was coated in epoxy and a mould made from it, and from that the final shape in fibreglass (2015)”, said Julian Mayor.

“I actually made the original product in white, with a black interior, but the interesting join lines where the planes meet was lost, so I decided to paint stripes into the mould to emphasise the contours of the chair and reintroduce a graphical element that is present in my other work. I’m particularly happy with how the stripes give a hand made feel to a chair that is very shiny and perfect. the pattern also produced a kind of ‘dazzle camouflage’ effect that is not far from the first render that I had imagined”, he added.
